Let ConferTel Provide Section 508 Compliance with your Webinar or Teleconference

Reach Your Widest Audience with Closed Caption Streaming:
Federal agencies are required to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make  available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to  encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these  goals. Under Section 508, agencies must give disabled employees and  members of the public access to information that is comparable to the  access available to others. This includes requirements for captioning of multimedia products such as training or informational multimedia  productions, such as online webinars and on-demand videos.

Although the law applies to Federal agencies, state and local government is also impacted by the act. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)  generally require that State and local governments provide qualified  individuals with disabilities equal access to their programs, services,  or activities unless doing so would fundamentally alter the nature of  their programs, services, or activities or would impose an undue burden. While best practices encourage universal accessibility and assistive  technologies, Section 508 does not require that commercial companies  comply unless they are receiving federal funds or have a procurement  contract with a federal agency.

Whether you contract with government agencies or simply seek to reach  the widest audience, you can make your webinars accessible to the  hearing-impaired with our closed caption streaming service. i-Present Captioning  provides real-time streaming text of all spoken dialog for  any meeting, conference call, webcast, webinar and other live or  recorded events.
